How many of you received this update this week from Replacements, Ltd.?
"....Based on the calls we are receiving, you have probably seen in the news that there has been recent turmoil in the tableware industry, with many famous brands filing in bankruptcy or operating in insolvency, including divisions of Waterford Wedgwood, Johnson Brothers, Franciscan, Royal Doulton, Royal Albert, Rosenthal, Hutschenreuther, Tirschenreuth, Lenox, Dansk, Gorham Stainless, Royal Worcester, and Spode. You may have also heard that Lenox is closing a select number of their outlets, Oneida the majority of theirs, and Fitz & Floyd and Pfaltzgraff all of theirs..."
If all these companies go away, would not their product instantly gain in market demand? And if those of us who have some of their vintage pieces are in a position to meet that demand, should it not escalate our sales? Just thinking about my Franciscan Pottery that I just discussed in the Pottery Group
. It may get real desirable, real quick.
